SVHC offers qi gong for cancer survivors


BENNINGTON — Southwestern Vermont Health Care will offer a 12-week qi gong class for cancer survivors and members of their support teams. The classes are scheduled 6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, starting Jan. 30, and will take place at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center at 100 Hospital Drive in Bennington.

This section — titled "Refresh, Renew & Rejuvenate" — is appropriate for beginners and those who are experienced in qi gong.

Participants will learn to increase their energy; release stress, anger, grief, and other negative emotions; cleanse their energy to achieve more well-being; find peace in the here and now; and activate their feeling of intelligence. Benefits include improved immunity, better sleep, increased energy sensitivity, greater vitality, and stress relief.

The class is presented by Nate Sumner of Villari's Martial Arts Center and generously supported by the Cancer Center Community Crusaders. There is no charge to participate.

For more information and to attend, contact Rebecca Hewson-Stellar, RN, patient navigator, at 802-440-4244.
